Karl & Jim, I've circled in red where the ponds are located. They aren't anything special, but often times you can hear what sound like thousands of frogs as you approach them. And it's always interesting to poke in that area.

There happened to be a utility worker driving by, and he told me he thought it was fine to hike there, because he sees lots of hikers doing so. So, I continued down until I reached the second "private property" sign, which gave me sufficient qualms that I decided to turn around and retrace my steps.
Took a look at both our tracks in Google Earth, and am getting a much better picture of where we diverged. Here ya go:

And here are some key photos along the way, which correspond to the camera markers on the red trail. We really had no idea that that little segment were #1626 (just a flower) is was private.

Yep, there weren't really many scenic views along that stretch of Atwood.
Agreed.

Ah, sure, I can see them in Google Earth now. Yeah, pretty sure neither of was aware of them, that day. It was just past solar noon, so the frogs were probably taking a siesta. :)

Thanks!

Back on the trail, again...
